Does Comcast Xfinity Offer Any Discounts?
Yes, Xfinity offers discounts on its internet, TV, and home security services for military, veterans, and students, along with limited-time offers that are available to everyone and change based on your location. Xfinity also offers a low-cost Internet Essentials plan to families and seniors who receive public assistance.
Let’s take a look at how you can qualify for each of these discounts and the Internet Essentials plan, plus where to sign up.
If you’re not currently an Xfinity customer, chances are there’s a deal waiting for you—or one on the way.
Comcast regularly makes limited-time offers for new customers—but they change depending on where you live. So your best bet for finding an Xfinity offer you can use is to search for internet, TV, or bundles with your address. (If you don’t mind a few extra emails, you can sign up for Xfinity deals emails too.)
And if you’re more of a face-to-face kind of person or prefer to call an Xfinity representative, be sure to ask what deals they can offer you while you’re on the phone or in the store.
We also regularly feature the latest Xfinity offers in our list of the month’s best internet deals, along with offers from other internet service providers (ISPs). This is a good way to see what special offers are out there so you can get a leg up on negotiating a good price.
Xfinity military and veteran discounts
If you’re looking for military and veteran discounts, you should check out Xfinity’s military page. This is where you’ll find the latest discounts for current and retired or separated service members.
To grab your Xfinity military discount, you’ll probably need to fill out the application form on the Xfinity military page and provide proof that you are or were in the military.
$25 coupon or $100 Visa gift card for military and veterans
Both of these offers require you to fill out a short application and provide proof of your military or veteran status by June 30, 2020.
What forms of military documentation does Xfinity accept?
Plan to apply for one of these Xfinity military discounts? Then you’ll need to provide proof of your military service that shows the following:
- First and last name
- Date of birth or discharge/retirement date
- Clear affiliation with the military
Xfinity details the full list of accepted forms of military service documentation during your application process. It also recommends crossing out any sensitive information, like your social security number, on any documentation you include in your application.
Xfinity student discounts
Xfinity usually has a special offer for students, and the best place to find it is on the Xfinity student page. To get an Xfinity student discount, you’ll need to fill out the application on the student page and possibly provide some sort of documentation that proves you’re currently a student.
When you apply for an Xfinity student discount, there are a few caveats you should keep in mind as you fill out the form:
- Only students attending US Title IV, degree-granting colleges or universities are eligible.
- Make sure you spell out your full college or university name. For example, type “University of Minnesota” instead of “U of MN.”
- You must be currently attending a qualified college or university—sorry, recent grads.
- Your eligibility will also depend on whether Xfinity internet and TV service is available in the area.
Students get a $150 Visa card with select TV and internet offers
What kind of student documentation is accepted?
If you’re not verified as a student right away, Xfinity may ask you to provide supporting documentation. It will then compare the information you entered in the application to the information on your documentation to prove that you’re currently a student.
Xfinity accepts any school-issued document, like a transcript, with your first and last name, the name of the school, and the date of your current enrollment. Remember: previous semesters or future semesters don’t count as current enrollment!
Xfinity discounts for seniors
Xfinity doesn’t currently offer deals that are explicitly for seniors, although some may qualify for the low-cost Internet Essentials plan. Internet Essentials costs $9.95 a month, and you get 25 Mbps download speeds, which are fast enough to keep a couple of people using the internet for Facebook, email, and watching an occasional TV show on Hulu.
Anyone on Supplemental Security Income (SSI) or a VA pension program qualifies for Internet Essentials, along with several other federal assistance programs. Here’s the full list of programs that may qualify you for Xfinity Internet Essentials:
- Public housing assistance
- Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)
- Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF)
